Sims 2 graphics problems
Documents/EA Games/Sims 2/Config - doesn't have the graphic rules - it has 3 files that are involved in the user set up of the game:
So you are seeing exactly what you should see in the config folder.
The actual config folder that you need to put your graphic rules into is in your Program folders : i.e.
\Program Files(X86)\EA Games\The Sims 2 Mansion & Gardens\Res\Data\Config\
\Program Files(X86)\EA Games\The Sims 2 Mansion & Gardens\Res\Data\CSConfig\
Assuming that you have all the CD/DVDs.
So my guess is that the reason the cards from previously aren't working is because you're putting them in the wrong place.
More problematic is the missing config-log.txt.
When you are looking for that, are you looking for it with the pc-name on the front?
Could you give me a screen shot of your logs folder? Thanks.
Now I feel stupid :-P Of course it was the wrong folder! Now I have replaced the graphics rules file in \Program Files(X86)\EA Games\The Sims 2 Mansion & Gardens\TSData\Res\Config and CSConfig, and I am no longer stuck in low resolution! Thank you :-) But still, now that I have the higher resolution, some of the menus are covering up half of the sim when I am making a new sim. I tried to include a screenshot (twice). Not sure it worked, because I can't see it when I preview my post. Any idea how to fix that? Also, I seem to have a texture problem. The sims looks pixely, even though both my effect detail, sim detalj and texture detalj settings are set to high :-(
Thank you so much for helping me :-D Have a great day!
By the way, I found my log file. My brain must have been temporarily off yesterday. Sorry about that. Here it is :-)
